currently running windoes vista 32 bit with Act 2008 version 10. Last year my database file would not open so I spent months trying to figure out how to resolve. I ended up just creating a new database for new entries but now I still to figure out how to retrieve the data from the original database.
I get various error messages when trying to open up the original database:
1. database could not be accessed....check your network connection....etc
2. error processing pad
is there a way for me access the data perhaps in some format that I can dump into excel and then reimport into my new act database? I really need access to that old data. I have scoured the discussion forums, knowledge base and have tried various solutions but I am still unable to open.
I wonder if it's because the database is on a secondary drive? there must be some way to get that data without going through ACT?
